Man is a psychosomatic unity. "The psychosomatic unit is a system of systems (Ludwig von Bertalanffy) including: the psychic system, central nervous system, autonomic nervous system, the immune system and the genome" (Jean Benjamin Stora about the process of somatization, 2006-2008). We study the different states of  dynamic interrelationships between these five systems and their  different balances and imbalances. The human being is an open dissipative energy system (I. Prigogine) and not a closed system.


Integrative Psychosomatic is taught at the Faculty of Medicine, La Pitié-Salpêtrière, from October 2006 as part of the Continuing Education of the University of Paris 6 (Pierre et Marie Curie).

At the beginning of the XXI century, through this professional degree,   a new scientific approach to psychosomatics is proposed :  INTEGRATIVE PSYCHOSOMATICS at the crossroadsof psychoanalysis, medicine, and neuroscience referring to new disciplines such as psycho-neuro-immunology, psycho-neuro-endocrinology, neuro-psychoanalysis, etc.


This new discipline includes, regarding  the psychic system, the metapsychology model of psychic functioning (S. Freud), and for the other systems, the most recent findings on the biological functioning and recent approaches to neuroscience.


This training emphasizes the need to address somatic patients in their biological, psychological and neural dimensions, repositioning them in their family and professional environments to facilitate  diagnosis and therapeutic care.
